You should consider pursuing the Minor Program in Psychology if you are interested in Psychology as a part of your general education or as a compliment to your training in another profession (i.e., nursing, rehabilitation medicine, physical health and education, social work, etc.).

Enrolment Requirements

This is a limited enrolment program. Note there are different options depending on whether a student has completed between 4.0 and 7.5 credits, or 8.0 or more credits.

Variable Minimum Grade or Minimum Grade Average

For students who have completed 4.0 to 7.5 credits:

PSY100H1 (73%) (AP and IB Psychology are not accepted)
• Gr. 12 Calculus

To ensure that students admitted to the program will be successful, applicants with a final grade lower than 73% in required courses will not be considered for admission. Please note that obtaining this minimum final grade does not guarantee admission to the program.
